With the injury of Karl Heinz Riedle and the inconsistancy of the other
Bundesliga forwards, it seems that Germany has only one attacker that can
produce the goods: Klinsmann. Germany can not depend solely on him, because
once he is shut down the whole German offense will suffer.
Germany need to find another German attacker that can produce the goods.
Andy Moeller can play next to Klismann, but I would rather see him in the
midfield knowing that he can still score. If Germany finds this striker,
then they would have three players who can find their way to the goal.
Rudi Voller is old, but he had a great year (last year) with Marsellia and
was one of the top scorers in France. This year he was injured, but lately
played a little a scored a couple of goals. A lot of the WC 90 veterans are
coming back and if Germany can not find a replacment to Riedle, maybe Voller
can do something is this area.
Another player that I think should be given the chance is Roland Wohlfarth.
I have never seen him play, but I know that he was one of top goal scorers in
Germany and has scored 13 goals so far in France- only 5 goals behind the
leading goal scorer. Take into account that the leading goal scorer in France
has scored 5 of his 18 goals from the penalty kicks. Wohlfarth has been
scoring a decent number of goal for 3-4 years in a row- He his consistant.
In addition, his expeiernce of playing abroad in a league like France that
includes a lot of internationals must have gained him expieirence. Therefore,
giving everythink else, he should be given a chance to prove himself on the
international level. Ulf Kirsten, Thom, Kuntz have not been able to prove
themselfs with the German national team.
The buttom line is: Germany can not depend on one striker if they want to
keep the championship.
